Barnaby Rudge

Quotations from the Charles Dickens novel Barnaby Rudge.

Barnaby Rudge: A Tale of the Riots of Eighty published in 1841, was Charles Dickens’ first attempt at a historical novel, set during the Gordon Riots of 1780. It was one of two Dickens novels published in his short-lived weekly serial Master Humphrey’s Clock. Barnaby Rudge was originally planned to be his first published novel, but changes by the publisher led to extended delays, which caused it to be his fifth published novel.
